Bale ruled out of Champions League game against Bayern

Real Madrid will be without Gareth Bale but Bayern Munich welcome back Robert Lewandowski for Tuesday's Champions League quarter-final second leg at the Bernabeu.

Carlo Ancelotti: "Small details decided the first leg and we have to focus on those".

"We know how competitive Real Madrid are going to be and I also know the Bernabeu in these qualifiers, and the atmosphere will be a great night".

Progression for Madrid would put them a step closer to becoming the first team to successfully defend the Champions League, and give Zinedine Zidane an incredible two triumphs in his first two seasons as coach.

11 - None of Bayern's past 11 Champions League games have ended in a draw (W7 L4) since their last-16 match at Benfica last season finished 2-2. We know they can harm the rival but they have also flaws, like all the teams.

The Poland global has also shown he is capable of the spectacular against Madrid - he scored all four of Dortmund's goals in a 4-1 semi-final, first-leg rout back in 2013.

Zidane then suggested that he only replaced Bale as a precaution as he did not want to take any risk with the Wales worldwide ahead of the coming crucial encounters with Bayern and Barcelona.

Bayern has only managed two wins in 12 matches against Madrid at the Bernabeu.

Madrid themselves will be without Gareth Bale with a calf problem picked up in the first leg, which has also made him a doubt for Sunday's heavyweight LaLiga clash with Barcelona, but the presence of Cristiano Ronaldo means he will be nothing like the loss Lewandowski was for Bayern in Munich. Their two defeats during that time came against Barcelona in April 2011 (0-2) and Schalke in March 2015 (3-4).

But Bayern midfielder Xabi Alonso, who will be playing his last ever Champions League game if Bayern go out, is confident that the Bundesliga leaders can turn it around against his former club. Whether Bayern play at home or away they don't change how they play.

Kroos is a key player for Real, who are looking to win La Liga and the Champions League this season. "We'll try to play our game and prepare well the game, like the first leg".

7 - Atletico have won seven of their nine Champions League games this season - no side in the competition have collected more victories.

Bayern teammates Mats Hummels and Jerome Boateng had been nursing injuries but should be available to play, while Javi Martinez is out because of suspension.

"I think we've quite very solid".
